Brazilian GP: Ferrari – “No clear picture yet”

Unimpressed practice session for both Ferrari drivers, Brazilian GP Friday practice shows that, Sebastian Vettel is only nearest rival of the strong and dominant Mercedes — but he is almost a second slower than Mercedes, particularly Interlagos featured a short lap at just 2.7 miles.

Kimi Raikkonen was also not happy with Brazilian Grand Prix Friday practice, after admitting Ferrari is struggling with race pace at Interlagos.

Vettel not impressed by track grip

Sebastian Vettel: “Overall it was a difficult day. We didn’t get the best timing for our run, so now we look forward to the analysis of our laps. Hopefully we can make a step forward for tomorrow and improve the car.”

“Today everybody struggled quite a lot with the tires: they seem even more tricky than last year, but then I think it was slippery for everyone. I tried to do the best I could, but maybe I wasn’t quick enough. The car was moving around and sliding quite a lot. Hopefully tomorrow we will be in better shape.”

Raikkonen baffled by “messy” day

Kimi Raikkonen: “In general, the two sessions were quite confusing: a lot of things happened and I don’t think we have got a clear picture. In the morning we spent the first half an hour to do some aero testing, then we had one run followed by a small issue with the set up and I spun off. In the afternoon a lot of things kept happening, always when we went out.”

“We had some laptimes but it was quite messy in all ways. I haven’t seen what the others did in the long run, our race pace felt ok but we’re still struggling a bit. Now we have to look at what we did today and then try to fix certain issues for tomorrow. For sure we have some work to do.”
